GAH! I'm back with yet another story. Darn those plot-bunnies! *shakes fist* Anyways, I will continue all my other stories, but I've had this idea for months now and I HAVE to get it out there. So, yeah.
DISCLAIMER: Do I really have to do this? I mean, if I owned Teen Titans, I'd be making episodes, not fanfics. HAVE SOME COMMON SENSE PEOPLE!
Beast Boy crept along the floor, making sure to stay as silent as possible. His destination was the couch, upon which his actual target sat. She had her hood raised, obsuring her facial features from anyone who glanced at her. Her upper torso was hunched over a thick, dusty book with a foreign language etched into its pages. She seemed not to notice the changeling which only made his objective easier. He grinned a base smile and continued his crawl towards the couch.
He decided to stay in human form for this mission so he had to crawl on his hands and knees, making the softest almost inaudible sounds on the carpet. His heart raced with anticipation, making loud thudding sounds. With the silence that coated the room, it was a surprise that Raven hadn't heard his beating heart, but she seemed too engrossed in her book to take notice.
Beast Boy ran his tongue along his lower lip. He was almost there, just a few more inches. Her scent wafted into his nose, poisoning it with her sickly sweet smell. Slowly and silently, he pushed himself onto his knees and peeked over the edge of the couch. She still hadn't noticed him and was reading her book furiously. Beast Boy grinned again and inhaled a short intake of breath, but not so quick it would make a sound. Holding that breath, he leaned forward at a steady pace until his head was at the side of hers. She still hadn't acknowledged him. Good.
Opening his mouth as wide as he could, his excitement rose to his throat in a great flurry, giving his vocal cords forcible energy. He turned his head a little more so he was facing her and screamed at the top of his lungs, "RAAAAAAAAAAAVEEEEEEEEEEEEN!"
In the split second he had done so, the empath's eyes widen and she jumped out of her seat onto the floor. The book flew from her hands and landed behind the couch, crashing at Beast Boy's side. Raven let out a loud yelp after she had landed on the floor and glanced backwards, seeing the smiling green prankster. As soon as she did her eyes narrowed in hatred and she put a hand to her chest which rose and fell rapidly.
"What the hell is your problem?" she shouted. "You almost gave me a heart attack you moron!"
Beast Boy sat there, grinning and not saying anything, just staring at her with a triumph look on his face. His mission was complete and was very successful. All in a day's work.
Raven on the other hand was seething with fury and stood up abruptly, still breathing heavily. Her heart was beating furiously and showed no sign of calming down. She turned to glare at Beast Boy once again whose expression remained the same.
"I scared you," he sang. He flashed his fanged tooth and wiggled his elfin ears, taunting her. "You got scared," he sang out.
Raven's eyebrow twitched and she clenched her right hand into a fist, digging her fingernails into her palm. Gritting her teeth, she raised her clenched hand high above her head before bringing it down on Beast Boy's head as hard as she could. He, in turn, shrunk to the floor clutching his noggin, rocking back and forth on the floor.
"Ah! What the hell? That hurt!" he screamed through clenched teeth. His eyes were shut tight and he rubbed his head soothingly.
"You don't go up and intentionally try to give people heart attacks! What kind of stupid are you?" she screamed back. She leaned over to look at him on the other side of the couch where he still laid on the floor, holding his injured head.
"It was just a joke!" he defended. He sat up with his legs spread out in front of him, looking up at the introverted empath. "Lighten up a little, will ya?"
Raven crossed her arms and sat back down on the couch with her back to Beast Boy. The bent up book that lay beside him was surrounded in black energy before it began to levitate in the air. It lifted above the couch and dropped onto Raven's lap. Raven frowned before she started to straighten out most of the bent pages.
Beast Boy frowned and stood up behind her. "See? There you go again! Ignoring people who just want to spend time with you! We're your friends, Raven! Stop acting like you hate us!" He gripped the edge of the couch and leaned over her head. Anger began to boil up inside him which made him squirm. He hated feeling like this, it wasn't like him. He took a deep breath and attempted to repress it, but it refused to be put down so easily.
"I don't hate you even though you annoy me greatly. There are times that I wish to be alone is all," responded Raven coolly. She didn't look up from her book which now had a couple of tears in it. She grimaced. It was a fragile yet rare book and only one of Beast Boy's simpleton parnks had already damaged it.
Beast Boy rolled his eyes. "Which is basically all the time. You almost never hang out with any of us. Even Robin gets out more than you do!" He took a step to the side and propped his elbows on the edge of the couch. "Why are you so stuffy and boring all the time?"
Raven glanced at him out of the corner of her eye before returning to her book. "I'm not the out-going person. I can't be a happy-go-lucky person like you," she deadpanned.
"Can't or won't?" asked Beast Boy.
The Azarithian glared at him. "Bite me," she spat.
Beast Boy's face grew hot with anger. He clenched his hands into fists and narrowed his eyes at her. The pent up anger he worked so hard to control was finally spilling over. He was just so sick and tired of her always putting him down and closing herself off from everyone. She barely even acted like she cared about any of them.
"You asked for it," he growled. He transformed into a rottweiler and lunged at her. Her eyes widened in surprise as he knocked her down on the couch. Stunned, Raven lay there as the green dog on top of her closed his sharp, fang-like teeth onto her forearm. She released an ear-splitting shriek as his teeth pierced her skin, leaving bloody teethmarks on her pale complexion.
Something in Beast Boy's brain clicked and he quickly jumped off of Raven and reverted back to his human form. He stared at her with a gaped mouth, regretting his harsh action.
Raven by this time was sitting up, gripping her injured arm. Pained tears brimmed in her eyes and spilled over her cheeks. Her hood had fallen back and the florescent lights above their heads made her tears glisten as they formed salty trails on her cheeks. She was gasping in pain as she stared in horror at her arm, which was freely gushing blood. He had bitten her deep, really deep. The blood flowed through her fingers, staining them a scarlet red.
"Raven! I-I didn't mean to. . .I'm sorry!" he shouted, panicked. He started to walk over to her only to have her scoot away.
"Go away!" she shrieked at him before she jumped off of the couch and ran out of the room. Droplets of blood trailed after her, marking her path.
Beast Boy stared after her, his mind stunned from shock. Had he honestly just done that? All because of a small dispute? He felt something warm running down his chin and used his gloved hand to wipe it off. When he looked down at his hand he gasped. It was stained with a red, thick liquid. It was blood.
Sorry it's so short. But I wanted to leave it at that. The other chapters will be longer, promise. I always find the first chapter the hardest. You always have to have a set-up. Well, here's mine.
So please! Review and tell me what you think! If you don't review, I won't write. I have a ton of other stories to finish and others that I want to start. I'm not wasting time on a story if no one's going to read it! I'd like at least 4 or 5 reviews until I get the second chapter posted.
Until next time~!
